War for the Planet of the Apes has an official plot synopsis!

WAR FOR THE PLANET OF THE APES has been in development for so long, I just kind of figured we would never find out any details about it, at least until it actually came out. But I was wrong, thankfully, because an official plot synopsis for the flick has just dropped from the tight-lipped studio. Here you go:

In ‘War for the Planet of the Apes’, the third chapter of the critically acclaimed blockbuster franchise, Caesar and his apes are forced into a deadly conflict with an army of humans led by a ruthless Colonel. After the apes suffer unimaginable losses, Caesar wrestles with his darker instincts and begins his own mythic quest to avenge his kind. As the journey finally brings them face to face, Caesar and the Colonel are pitted against each other in an epic battle that will determine the fate of both their species and the future of the planet.

That does sound pretty epic. It sounds like this will be a special effects spectacular to rival the first two, very well-received films. And we don't have too long to wait, because the projected release date is currently July 14, 2017!

Written by director Matt Reeves and Mark Bomback, WAR FOR THE PLANET OF THE APES stars Serkis, Woody Harrelson, Gabriel Chavarria, Judy Greer, Steve Zahn, Karin Konoval, Sara Canning, Aleks Paunovic, and Amiah Miller.
